Challenge #47 Midway: Optional Theme...All TIED UP for Christmas

Welcome back folks. It is the 15th of the month and time for our midway.

As we are halfway through the month of November already, it is time to see what the Merry Maidens have been up to with the following sweet images from Limited Runs, our guest sponsor this month!

 Kitty in Stocking Coloured (Category: Seasonal-Christmas; Section: 61-70)

Winter Fox (Category: Seasonal-Christmas; Section: 31-40)

Juggling Snowman (Category: Snowman; Section: 1-10)

Puppy in Stocking (Category: Seasonal-Christmas; Section: 61-70)

Thank you so much to this month's generous sponsor for providing such amazing designs for the team to work with! Please pop over and pay Limited Runs a visit when you have the chance! You are sure to find something to add to your wish list while you are there!

Now check out what the Merry Maidens came up with to inspire you. Julie, one of our Sleigh Belles, wasn't able to join us during the start so she is joining us for the midway. Clicking on the names will take you to the individual blogs where you can check out the details for all these wonderful cards.

So if you haven't entered already, what are you waiting for? It is time to link up your Christmas and other holiday cards for November. Whether you choose to link up ANY type of Christmas or holiday card you've made for a chance to win this month's Paper Kit, or link up two of them simply to earn your free paper this month, or you choose to also follow the optional theme to have a chance at the sponsor's prize, it is completely up to you!  

Here is a refresher of the details for this challenge...

Please remember that this is a CARDS ONLY link up. While we've had some lovely tag entries in the past, we've sadly had to disqualify them.

Challenge #47

Optional Theme:
All TIED UP for Christmas

Christmas presents are a beautiful thing aren't they? And, I am not just talking about what you might find waiting for you once it is unwrapped. There is also the outside to consider. All those pretty wrapping papers that are beautifully embellished with so many wonderful items. Thankfully, we can design our Christmas cards to emulate the gifts all tied up waiting for us beneath the tree.
That is why this month, in order to have a chance to win the prize from our guest sponsor, be sure to use ribbon, string, twine and/or lace featured prominently on your card. If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.

Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win the featured paper set. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $10.00 gift certificate from Limited Runs.

If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why I started it under the 'Introductions' tab.  As this is a different kind of link up where we have both an Anything Goes Christmas or other December Holiday option AND an optional theme to follow, be sure to read all the details and rules you need to know in order to participate, by checking out the 'Challenge Details' tab (both tabs located at the top of the blog).

You can find the Challenge Details Summary along with the link up for
Challenge #47 by clicking HERE.

Don't Forget, if everything goes according to plan...

  • I plan to post two winner announcements as soon as I can manage. 
  • Our new challenge will start on December 1st.
  • Other special posts may be published throughout the month. Be sure to sign up to have our posts delivered by email or follow us through Bloglovin' so you don't miss a thing!


We look forward to seeing you participate!
